How To Build A Security Posture Strategy For The Control Plane And Assets In The AWS Cloud
March 25 @ 11:00 am PDT
March 25, 2021 | 11:00AM PT (2:00PM ET)
Leveraging cloud security posture management (CSPM) tools can provide deep visibility by scanning cloud assets and services, and also enable automated monitoring and reporting for compliance. Increasingly seen alongside CSPM tools are cloud workload protection platforms (CWPP) which feature integrating protection for cloud control plane options and workload details. This includes approved images, metadata attributes, and permissions. This combination of real-time monitoring and remediation information can help automate misconfiguration detection and proactively identify risks in DevSecOps pipelines and migration activities.
In this webinar, SANS and AWS Marketplace will discuss how to build a strategy for securing your control plane and workloads with CSPM and CWPP capabilities. They will also offer practical guidance and tips to execute on this cloud security posture management strategy as a component of broader cloud infrastructure security.
Attendees of this webinar will learn how to:
- Centralize and simplify security operations teams’ efforts to build and maintain a secure continuous cloud posture
- Identify where agent-based and agentless workload protections are best suited
- Leverage auto-remediation functionalities to improve compliance, reduce noise, and resolve misconfigurations
- Model and actively enforce gold standard policies
